This ^ 

 

The 70x is overkill for 100% fps gaming IMO.  You don't gain much if any advantage in soundstage and positioning over the Sennheisers or Audio Technicas.  What you gain is a more enjoyable sound signature.

I feel quite ignorant asking this but is there a special kind of cable that I should get for the 3.5 male to male from the E9 to the mixamp/dss?



Grats, and welcome to the 880 club! Get ready for very comfortable sessions of extended gaming.

 

About the cable question: the skeptic in me would humbly suggest "no". I'd personally stick with something that's long and flexible enough for your setup, and gold plated jacks are a nice bonus (less likely to wear out quickly).

Okay, so I was playing Castlevania HD with the Q701 and my mic.

I have to say that the position of the game/voice knob is INCREDIBLY important.

At least with THIS game, I was able to get a loud enough game volume while maintaining a large bias towards voice chat. One very slight nudge more to voice, and the game volume became too low.

So perhaps what Chicolom says is true when he says you don't need an extra amp with the Q701 and a mic, but you have to make sure that knob is very well placed. Master volume was maxed, and the voice knob was near 1-2 o clock.

I'm not sure this will work with other games, but it was enough for Castlevania at least.

I haven't gamed on anything needing a mic for a while, so I can't be certain. perhaps I'll give Black ops another go soon, and see...

Hello, I have a question about two particular headphones that have seen many threads on, but haven't really gotten a definite answer on. I'm not new to Headfi by the way,but I have decided to create a profile to ask this question. The Question is for gaming which would be better, the AD700 or the Samson SR850? Thank you for your time. biggrin.gif

The ATH-AD700 light bass is a turn off.

So I would pick the SR850 over the ATH-AD700 no matter what I was using headphones for.

Are the SR850 good with the Turtle Beach DSS. I plan on using the Headphones for gaming and movies primarily, but I still want something that will sound good with music. 

 

What would you give Samson SR850

 

competitive

?/?

 

Fun

thanks for replying

So even though you have the master volume on the mixamp maxed out, the Q701 was able to filter out the hissing?

Hell, the Q701 has no hiss even when playing at loud levels. It just has an extremely high tolerance to hiss. Going from the Q701 to the D7000 is jarring in terms of Mixamp noise. the D7000 is a very sensitive headphone, and picks up all the noise.

I'm sure the SR850s will work fine with the Turle Beach DSS.

Best thing I like about the SR850 is the price, I got then when they were $40 and free shipping, now there $50 or more.

They are a decent clone (knock off) of the AKG K240s.

Competitive gaming?  never gamed with them.

Fun, yes they are a very "fun" headphone.

I'm currently wearing them right now while listening Selena Gomez-love you like a song baby, sounds fine.

1812 Overture sound nice too.

Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it.

I have looked around a bit and found out that Fischer Audio FA-011 are good with gaming. Will these headphones be any good with FPS games and music? I also plan on using them with the Turtle Beach DSS for surround sound.

I don't know much about headphones but i recently bought goldring dr150 £30 followed by ad700 £85 and then superlux hd668b £30
If i had the chance to test them side by side before buying i would have chosen the superlux. To me they are easily at least 90%+ for directional sound compared to the ad700 and they are nearly a third of the price. They also
sound more fun on battlefield and mw3 and for films.
All the headphones are used with turtle beach dss2 which works well especially with sitrep pro and dead silence pro.
